New Goat Playground for the Valley!

Last weekend, volunteers Kenneth and Rob spent the day creating the Valley’s long awaited big goat playground! Using recycled and repurposed timber and electrical cable reels, a fantastically fun area, complete with a slide, was created for the playful ovines! 

The Valley is always on the lookout for cable reels in good condition to provide fun play areas for the animals, so please let us know if you have any you no longer need!

Rest in Peace Victoria Donkey

In early June, we said goodbye to the equine matriarch of the Valley, sweet Victoria donkey. 

After nine years in the Valley, Vic passed peacefully in her shelter with her donkey love, Albert, close by her side. 

Vic was an elderly girl, in her mid-thirties, and had been trotting happily into her autumn years. 

She was polite and gentle and was the leader of the Valley’s little donkey herd. 

As she grew older, Vic needed special attention from her veterinarians and farrier, and she was always cooperative and friendly during her checks and treatments. 

Vic loved sunshine, carrots and brushes, but her greatest love was her lifelong partner, Albert. While our hearts are saddened from Victoria’s loss, we are comforted that she had a long, happy life, surrounded by donkey friends. We are ensuring her herd, especially Albert, are getting lots of TLC while they grieve the passing of Victoria after all these years. 

Rest well Victoria - such a special little donkey with the biggest of hearts - you will always live on in ours.
